Sloshy Gratitude

Our lives are made up of numerous journeys. Together they make a whole.

Look upon others. Pause. Consider the chapters with in their lives. The chapters in your own life.

What chapter are you in dear reader?

Is the pen in your hand or do you feel as if it’s in another’s?

Both?

Focus on your breath, inhabit your body. Appreciate all that you are.

Dip into the well of gratitude. Don’t be stingy.

Fill it so that it sloshes as you carry it, soaking your feet, leaving imprints of gratitude in the places you travel. Share it with others.

Today, as you catch yourself holding your breath or tensing your shoulders against the heaviness, focus on one breath and remember you matter.

  1. The chapter that I am in …. I’m in a great novel, with some romantic moments but also filled with suspense.
    I very well like your analogy of the pen, who is writing your life’s story? I must say that through blogging it helps me to take some control. I write about my ‘progress’ but it’s really me. No bells or whistles, no exaggerations or beautiful story lines.
